A theoretical model of the determinants of young driver crash risk is outlined and some methodogical issues concerning types of available data, measures of crash risk and measures of exposure to risk are discussed. Within this framework, published literature on young driver crashes in Australia and other countries is reviewed. The general nature and magnitude of the problem is described in terms of data on fatal and serious injury crashes derived from mass databases; information from more detailed studies of sub-sets of crashes is used to provide a more comprehensive description of the patterns of occurrence & charateristic of young driver crashes. Information is discussed in relation to driver age, experience and gender, time of crash occurrence, passenger characteristics, crash type, pre-crash vehicle manoeuvres, driver errors, and alcohol and seatbelt offenses.

Survey of occupant restraint : stage 2( Book )

2 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study was commissioned to provide information on seat belt wearing rates in the Northern Territory and in provincial towns in Victoria and New South Wales. Data was obtained through observation of restraint use in Alice Springs and Darwin and in six towns in each of Victoria and New South Wales. A strict sampling frame was followed that ensured as far as possible that a representative sample of road users in the surveyed towns was obtained. The results of this survey were found to be very similar to those of the Stage 1 survey. This lends credence to the conclusion that the results of the two surveys are representative of conditions in provincial towns in Australia. Surveys. Statistics. Provincial towns
